Kamil Yenice, Ph.D.

Associate Professor and Chief of Clinical Physics

Research Summary

Dr. Yenice investigates stereotactic radiation, metastases and general radiation oncology with a focus on clinical trials. Currently, he is co-investigator on four ongoing trials serving patients with a variety of conditions, including breast and pancreatic cancer. 

In addition to his clinical research activities, Dr. Yenice has been invited to speak at several conferenced, including those of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) and the Canadian Organization of Medical Physicists (COMP). He also carries a full-load of teaching and mentoring responsibilities.
